Many of us spend most of our waking hours in the workplace. Each day we have to deal with various tasks and clients. The job gets really easy only if we always feel comfortable while working.
One way that helps employees feel more comfortable is proper air conditioning. When we always feel comfortable, we’re likely to focus and give our best on the task at hand. This somehow supports Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, which says that our physiological needs should be met first before we can move on to the higher levels.
Employees become more productive and focused
That means our safety and comfort should be satisfied first before we can fully focus on intellectual tasks. It’s not easy to think clearly when it’s hot, especially when we’re spending the whole day working. If it’s hot and uncomfortable, that results to lower productivity (Did you know that people living in cooler climates generate over 10 times the economic production compared to people living in the hottest climates?).
Aside from productivity, the employees’ health is also being affected by hot conditions in the workplace. There’s a greater risk for cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. Furthermore, a hot and uncomfortable workplace contributes to stress and frustration of employees. That leads to a weakened immune system (hence it results to ailments).
Prevent the stress and sick days
But with proper air conditioning, the employees’ productivity can be increased. We also prevent the sick days that affect our performance and productivity. Proper air conditioning also leads to more satisfied employees. They will become more motivated to bring more results to the company.
So how can you have a proper air conditioning system in your workplace? First, you must consider reliability. Just one day without proper air conditioning can lead to tremendous frustration and loss of productivity.
To keep it working reliably all year round, prompt servicing and filter replacements are also required. This is to avoid hassles and prevent future problems. This ensures that the air is cool even during the hot summer days. Employees will be happy to work each day and produce more results for the company.
